Year 6, Week 34 (September 4-10)

A great deal of professional news this week focused on the death of Queen Elizabeth II, which I don’t consider to be within the purview of the National News Roundup. The remaining stories feel like something of a 45 Groundhog Day, but it’s what we’ve got to work with this week. Here’s hoping we’ll see more progress next week.

Standard standing reminders still apply: I guess after six years I’m conceding that I’m a journalist, but I summarize news within my areas of expertise. NNR summaries often contain some detailed analysis that’s outside my expertise–I’m a lawyer, not an envelope!–but all offroad adventures are marked with an asterisk. And, of course, for the things that are within my lane, I’m offering context that shouldn’t be considered legal advice. Okay, I think that’s about it for the disclaimers.  Onward to the news!

So that’s what I have for this week, and I’m sorry, there are no news refunds. Nonetheless, for making it through, you deserve this dancing doggo and a more functional government.  I’ll be back next week with more restructured and improved news, and I hope you will be back as well–but in the meantime, feel free to ping the National News Roundup ask box, which is there for your constructive comments.  Send me questions! Send me feedback! Send me tiktok videos involving cats!
